Overall,good phone,but lacks of Auto-focus!

mertcan1k2 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

This phone is great if you like QWERTY phones. But you should know that before you have decided to buy this phone, there is no Auto-focus which enables you to take close pictures. You won't be able to take pictures of pages. On the other hand, phone's battery is really great.

Build quality 9/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 9/10
Multimedia 8/10
Camera 6/10 Because there is no Auto-focus despite 8 MP camera.
UI speed 9/10
Everyday usage 7/10
Text input 9/10
Display 7/10
Battery 10/10

Pros

  • long life battery
  • nice keyboard.

Cons

  • lacking of auto-focus.

Worse than old e72

damago1 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I am really dissapointed. I am using the phone for business mainly. Nokia turned a great keyboard oriented symbian s60 on e72 into poor man's android clone which cannot be used with keyboard only with e6.

Problems:
- often when somebody is trying to call me there is an eror mesage on the screen WSERV LOGGING ERROR with some number and i cannot answer the call
- when trying to write sms after entering the new sms scren the keyboard is very unresponsive, looses keystrokes and the backspace key does not work. After about minute or so everything gets back to normal but using it is a pain
- other bugs like this in many places
- the keys for home/calendar/contacts and green/red phone are all COMPLETELY FLAT. There is completely no way to use them without looking at the phone.
- nokia did remove two top hardware keys compared to e72 so part of the tiny screen is wasted for two software keys larger than tiny information on each key on the old phone. Even worse: the left key has completely the same function as the home button and it cannot be redefined.
- there is no way to use most apps via keyboard only. Even built in menus or home scren: you can navigate through menu icons with the keys but you have to press the touchscreen instead of presing ok key or enter key to select. So you have to go back and forth between touch screen and the keyboard which is worse than using either keyboard or large touchscreen. Instead of a good phone for those using mainly keyboard now this is a phone...  

Build quality 10/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 10/10 I dont expect more from tiny screen phone. I have an ipad for full screen internet
Multimedia 10/10 More than I can expect from tiny screen phone. And much more than e6 users will ever need.
Camera 5/10 No autofocus. No closeup for documents
UI speed 5/10
Everyday usage 4/10 Bugs and not very well thought of interface for keyboard oriented phone
Text input 5/10 The only reason for such a low nratong here is a bug with nonresponsive keyboard when starting to write sms
Display 9/10 Lot of space wasted on a small screen for a space between icons and widgets, rounded edges etc
Battery 10/10

Pros

  • multiple homescreens and good swipe down message area with toggles for bluetooth/silent mode/mobile data etc.
  • lock/unlock slider which is also switching on flashlight when long pressed. On previous phones there was a tendency to unlock and call random people from the pocket
  • Excellent battery life.

Cons

  • Cannot be used with keyboard only
  • Camera unable to take photos of documents
  • Screen space wasted on home screens

Very Satisfied

ELGRECO has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Awesome communicator phone. Nokia Drive (GPS) is the best! Belle update made everything very smooth. Great for e-mail and document editing. The qwerty keyboard is worth all the money! As of today, there is no phone that can compare to this other than the blackberry 9900. Nokia did a good job on this one.

It is a good phone. I liked the camera so much. But it has some cons like battery. Others are very well. Wifi gaming qwerty etc. The touch screen is really usable. I liked the d-pad much too. Generally I use it in games and in internet. And the symbian anna is the best thing for this phone.
